Amazon took advantage of the announcement to release Prime Music and Prime Reading services for Brazilian users. The music streaming platform has over two million tracks with no announcements between content playback. Like its main competitors, the service offers the possibility to download files for playback in offline mode. In addition to a web player, Prime Music has apps for Android and iOS smartphones (iPhone and iPad).

Amazon Reading now gives you access to an exclusive selection of revised eBooks published in Brazil. The platform is accessed through the Kindle app, with Android and iOS versions, or through the Kindle digital book reader.
